Monday Monday

I know Phoebe, I feel this way too! ugh........time to get up and get to work............But it is so comfy right here in bed. ha ha

Yesterday hoed half of the garden. I picked some Kale and put it in the freezer for later. kale soup is a staple at our house in the winter. YUM! and good for you too.
everything is growing good. Hopefully no rain in sight to keep the weeds down a little. Been hoeing a lot to keep them at bay.Dad has been coming down and hoeing like crazy. He lives about 20 minutes away but loves the garden. You can't take the farmer out of him. Our garden is a field. It is huge but we  freeze and can the excess to have homegrown veggies in  the winter. Can't wait for the first tomato. Even though I have "officially" harvested something, it doesn't count until the first tomato is picked!  anyone else live on tomato sandwiches in the summer? oooooooo  that is living!

so far have not seen the raccoons this year but saw the biggest fattest woodchuck run from our field to the farmers field across the road. He will be trouble when the butternut squash starts to grow. I shook my fist at him and yelled "that's rig! go to his garden~ it is much bigger!" LOL  I don't think he was afraid.

A fox has been a little troubling. He was up on our front porch one day and the next day in the neighbor's yard. Nothing here like chickens for him to eat so not sure why he is sticking around. They eat little animals like chicks, eggs,birds,baby bunnies and chipmunks. We will have to keep an eye out for him just to make sure he is not rabid or something. I think he is just surveying the area for possible places to make a den. We do feed feral cats and the birds so hope we are not "setting the table" for the fox.

Not much happening here except work today. watching the grandkids tomorrow play baseball and Wed learning our fate at work. We have been bought out by another company and are supposed to know Wed how much longer we have a job. YAY.....just love this economy and how companies buy other companies until they are the only one in town. makes me sick. Money rules and it should not. hopefully Wed is not our last day! their computer conversion is not done yet so I think they still "need us" for a just never know.
My favorite grocery store they did the same. The plaza they are in was bought by WalMart to put in a superstore. We already have one 10 minutes to the other side of town. Why we need two is beyond me.They just want to be the only one and will do everything in their power to get their way. I hate that my store will be leaving. They are opening a store down the Cape but that is over an hour drive. I am not going to drive that far for groceries. We will be watching the budget very carefully as the other grocery stores in town are more expensive. Nice combo huh? no job, more expensive food. what else is new?  Anyone have a recipe for fox stew?  (just sayin)

We have a fox too and found that it was attracted to our compost pile. Yummy compost, yummm. Anyway now we are trying to figure out a more secure composting plan even though we never include animal products in the pile only fruits and vegs and clippings.
